In the light of economics evaluation of maize production, primary data for the year 2013-14 were collected from randomly selected 100 farmers of maize growers in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh.   In order to coping the objectives of the study, revealed overall average size of farms i.e. 1.05 ha, cropping intensity ranged 197.84 – 236.94 per cent among sample forms. The cost of cultivation of maize per hectare came to Rs. 37387.13. On an average the major components on which maximum cost was incurred being 19.28 per cent whereas minimum in plant protection 1.25 per cent, the cost of production was observed i.e. 1457.97 Rs/ha whereas productivity witnessed i.e. 31.97 qt/ha. Gross returns was calculated as Rs. 43062.50, cost C1, C2 and C3 was found maximums in large farms Rs. 37003.98, Rs. 24143.98 and Rs. 20281.83, however minimums was observed in marginal farm being  Rs. 18152.91, Rs. 6152.91 and Rs. 2848.67,  respectively.
